Thames Water JEDI Programme

We want to celebrate some of the brilliant work we’ve been working on with the UK’s largest water company, Thames Water! 

Together we have been busy bees as always, reaching out to communities who have less access to green spaces and are underrepresented but are nature guardians of their local patches. Our partnership will help to boost biodiversity, conserve water and empower people to take action where they live. 


1. A microgrant fund.  This is now closed for 2022, coming back for 2023!

2.  A series of accessible nature resources which celebrate water as a way to connect with and protect nature

3. An innovative JEDI programme.  JEDI (Justice, Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) Nature Champions are young individuals or groups of young people who are passionate about nature and want to inspire others to feel included and take action where they live

4. A seedball giveaway – coming soon! 

Through this programme, we are supporting nature guardians who come from communities typically underrepresented in environmental action, such as:

  • People of Colour and People from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds
  • People with disabilities
  • People from LGBTQIA+ communities
  • People from areas of social deprivation
  • People from low socioeconomic status households
